DOOA System Terra 30 setup

Planted this puppy on 2/21, so a little over two weeks in...

Hardware from AFA:
System terra 30 (integrated filter behind wall)
Aqua sky g 301
Ada San sui stone & branchwood
Ada mistflow

All the plants from Buceplant, everything is labeled in pic except for java moss and Anubias nana petite

Fauna is one juvenile Scarlet Badis (0.5Ēish right now) and some hitchhiker snails

Running a 10W preset heater in the filter, and only media Iím using are some bio rings and filter pads



Plants; deciding layout of wall...

Right after planting 2/21. Anubias Petite nana and Buce green wavy crazy-glued to stones. Everything else tied to wabi-kusa wall with thread.

As of today, 3/10. Only developments thus far- Ďcascade kingí Buce is not doing too hot on the wall due to lack of humidity...hoping it can recover after some more root development, and I added some nana petite to the upper right section of the wall. Also hoping moss will naturally creep on to the driftwood, but not sure this will happen due to the low humidity.

My tiny fish...can anyone confirm this is a Scarlet Badis? This tank hold about 2.5 gal including the filter area, which accounts for half of the volume. Iím sure itís not recommended to have a scarlet in such a small tank...but the scale seems right to me.

One month-ish update:

Cascade king buce and mini bolbitis not doing great on the wall, but surviving. Hoping spring weather and higher humidity help them establish. The nana petites are doing really well both submerged and on the wall, throwing out a new leaf about every week. All other plants doing reasonably well.

My little mystery badis which was sold as a scarlet badis at my lfs, is pretty clearly not that. I think itís a black tiger dario...which is fine by me, still very pretty. It has about doubled in size I think, eating a diet of live bbs and microworms...although it has been ignoring the worms recently. Might try culturing grindal worms for it soon as a bigger alternative.

Cool. Is the filter a trickle type with a pump? Like an AIO Tank?

Aio, yes. Trickle, not exactly...more like a giant hob filter.
